The 58 of Jim Furyk has been coming under the attention among golf fans and enthusiasts.
Even at late forties, he has a backswing that is admirable and he fittingly showcased a 58 when he played the final round of the Travelers Championship that was held on Sunday.
It was certainly the first 58 that were made in the history of the PGA Tour.
